China's electricity consumption, a key indicator of economic activity, rose 7.5 percent year on year in 2013, the National Energy Administration said on Tuesday.
Electricity used in 2013 stood at 5.32 trillion kilowatt hours, according to a statement on the administration's website.
The growth rate is 2 percentage points higher than that in 2012.
In breakdown, the service sector consumed 10.3 percent more electricity than a year earlier, the industrial sector 7 percent more, while power used by the agricultural sector was 0.7 percent more than a year earlier, the statement said.
Data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed China's economy expanded by 7.7 percent in the first nine months of 2013, higher than the government's full-year target of 7.5 percent.
Figures on China's annual economic performance are due to be released next Monday. --Xinhua
